From his travels through England, Heinrich Schultheis brought the skill of rose-growing with him in 1868 and thus changed his home village, in whose tradition more than 2 million roses are still produced annually today. The large rose fields turn the abstract number into a vivid picture. The most diverse colours and shapes are found close together.
For centuries the beauty has fascinated by the harmonious shape of its flowers and colours. The decisive perception happens with the nose! As soon as the sense of smell penetrates into the depths of the rose, feelings or memories are triggered. For thousands of years, a fragrant bouquet of roses has rightly been regarded as an expressive symbol of a declaration of love. However, the queen of flowers is not only beautiful, she also has a positive effect on well-being: Invigorating in case of exhaustion and calming in case of stress.
For anyone who has visited Steinfurth, the rose is no longer just a flower like many others. It is a work of art, a cultural asset, an experience of nature, a symbol of beauty - in short: a world of its own!
In Steinfurth there are still numerous rose companies that send the queen of flowers all over the world. We would like to introduce you to the four large companies that have a rose show garden. In all companies you can marvel at the splendour of roses in their own café.
